As a registered ICP, MES Power Engineering can manage your new connections, which include diversions of existing assets on your site.
Each host DNO has a connection process to make connections to the right standards and within the time frames specified by the regulator.
Customers can typically expect to follow this process:
We can take care of this for you – it involves drawing up a development site plan detailing the required loadings of proposed buildings or generation capacity. This plan must then be sent as an application to the DNO so that they can provide a Point of Connection.
The DNO will provide a POC and non-contestable charges statement.
We will then prepare a quote using the information provided.
The sum of the non-contestable and contestable works gives you the total connection cost.
When you have placed the order for the contestable works, MES will design a connection plan for approval by the DNO.
Once the non-contestable charges have been paid, the DNO will approve MES’s connection design.
The DNO / IDNO will produce an adoption agreement that requires signatures from MES and the DNO /IDNO. It is a standard document that lays out the process for adopting and connecting the asset constructed by MES. In some cases, the customer will also be required to sign it.
Once the design is approved, MES procures the equipment and prepares for the connection construction phase.
MES will then begin the installation to the host DNOs technical standards. The DNO will carry out regular inspections to ensure compliance.
We test and commission the installation before forwarding the documentation to the DNO and requesting a connection date.
